<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/news/features/wp7keyboard-042811.aspx' target='_blank'>http://research.microsoft.com/en-us...ard-042811.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Fat fingers and compact smartphone screens just aren't a good match. Combine a few key misses with a well-meaning auto-correction feature and it's no wonder that "I ate the hummus" turns into "I ate the humans."
